Zobi - Harvester
This revolutionary new algae harvesting system uses advanced membranes to achieve 100% harvest efficiency and eliminate the need for secondary dewatering. The system attains up to 15-20% concentrate in primary harvesting with a crystal clear permeate that is 10 times lower turbidity than U.S. drinking water standards. Operation has been validated for many classes of algae including diatoms, green algae, cyanobacteria, and red algae. The automated system is easy to operate, and algae are harvested at ambient pressure without exposure to high centrifugal forces or shear. The scalable system is available in sizes from 5 gpm to 200,000 gpm.
Zobi comes from a combination of two Greek words for “life”, Bios and Zoe, which are representative of our corporate goals.
Bios, our physical life, e.g. body, food, water, clothing. We are working to realize the high productivity of algae in protein and oil production solve global dilemmas including to avert a world protein crisis, halt climate change from GHG, reduce global conflict via biofuel availability, alleviate poverty, provide good jobs, and improve standards of living.
Zoe, our spirit and soul, e.g. meaning, purpose, fulfillment, inner joy, a “this is living” kind of life. We are working to facilitate real, genuine, fulfilling, abundant lives in our team, local communities, and the world through (i) providing marriage, parenting, financial, and leadership training; (ii) promoting volunteering and community service through special paid leave and our affiliated charity Stepping Forward International, and (iii) partnering globally with Compassion International.
